Hackers target accounts while you sleep, looking to take over them during that timeframe.


Your MFA app might be sending too many notifications. It may become bothersome after some time.

Cyber criminals aren't immune from this trend either; they've taken advantage of "MFA fatigue" to gain access to sensitive business data.

MFA (Multi Factor Authentication) is essential to protecting the data on your devices. MFA adds another layer of security by requiring two methods (password + SMS code sent directly to phone) for you to verify who you are when accessing certain accounts or files on a mobile phone or computer.

Constant alerts can become cumbersome and confusing.

Attackers know this and often spam employees with MFA notifications in the middle of the night. This increases the odds that someone will authenticate an attempt at login due to frustration, fatigue or just to stop receiving notifications.

Now there is an effective weapon against fatigue in MFA.

Microsoft Authenticator now utilizes number matching technology to ensure the MFA notification you receive corresponds with your login attempt and prevent cyber criminals from exploiting notification fatigue.

How does number matching function?

As soon as a MFA notification arrives, your app will display a random number that must be entered to authenticate login attempts.

Microsoft Authenticator also features biometric authentication capabilities. This means you can use fingerprints, face features or any other unique physical characteristic to authenticate yourself and verify who you are.

By taking these security steps, you can thwart cyber criminals while safeguarding sensitive data.

Number matching is now possible with Microsoft Authenticator, providing extra protection by keeping your app updated.
